Declan Donnelly said that the award for Best Entertainment Presenter marked a somewhat unnerving milestone in their careers.

"It was particularly nerve wracking when someone reminded us that this is number 13," said Donnelly, "but it's such a thrill. It still means such a huge amount to us."

The pair also received a landmark award marking 25 years in the industry with Prince Charles paying tribute to their professional accomplishments and their extraordinary friendship.

"The warmth and empathy they show towards charitable causes, their viewers and their deep friendship towards one another are as great achievements as their countless and well-deserved awards. The nation has taken them to their hearts," said Prince Charles.
